Importantly, Sokoloff’s character was not part of the Baby-Sitters’ Club. Cokie served as an antagonist for the club members, and Sokoloff had the mean-girl cred for the role: She’d previously played Gia, Stephanie Tanner’s bully-turned-buddy on Full House.

It seems strange that Marvel would continually keep this character around, only to keep her at arm’s length when it comes to power and position in their universe. They had another go at it with Jubilee, a 2004 Robert Kirkman series that was released along with other solo series featuring X characters. After that ended with six issues, Jubilee went mostly unseen, falling more and more from where she started years ago.

But the raw energy and irresistible group rapport speaks for itself. The rowdy five-some jostle for the limelight and scandalize a bunch of stodgy, confused British dudes—a fairly prescient depiction of the Spice Girls mania that was about to rock the nation. A glum Victoria Beckham—the only Spice Girl who doesn’t sing a word in “Wannabe”—Mona Lisa-smiles at the camera with the quiet confidence of someone who knows that they will one day sleep with David Beckham. … [Read more...] about 20 Years of Girl Power: How the Spice Girls Fought to Keep ‘Wannabe’ Weird
I think the greater censorship dangers today involve attempts by nongovernmental entities—such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other internet companies—to decide what speech is appropriate online, and those efforts largely are directed at hate speech. Facebook and other internet companies aren’t bound by the First Amendment, which only applies to the government.
